    I'll hold off judgement till I see it, looks promising but I'd like context. Still, excited for Ghostbusters, but still mourning Harold Ramis.

    Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy might be this movies only saving grace for comedic factor, but I'm not real sure I'm looking forward to this, this might end up being a RedBox rental one night and not really and go to theater and see. When I heard of Ghostbusters reboot, I was hoping for a dark gritty version which seems to be the trend with the nostalgic movies.

      This movie could be either really funny or really bad. I'm kind of leaning on the latter, but I'm definitely reserving judgement until I see more.

      I can't stand Melissa McCarthy. I find her extremely grating, and honestly think she's going to ruin this movie for me.

      Hopefully her performance will make me eat my words.

      Exactly. Just make sure to use one of those "free one night" codes they like to text out.

      If anything, I feel like this movie's comedic factor rests on McKinnon's shoulders. She's definitely the funniest one in the bunch.

    Wow honestly not a fan of this, followed the link and checked out the packs and the car and I can say from the looks I am disappointed. I will wait till I've seen more before I decide rather to see the movie or not.

    Is this a sequel or a reboot? The article mentions a "new Ecto-1," and it bothers me it's not the Ecto-2 if we're talking sequel.

      As far as I understand it, it's a reboot.

        I see. That's kinda sad... The original Ghostbusters was an awesome legacy to build upon.

          Agreed, I was under the impression it was an expansion of the universe as in the original movie Bill Murray even mentions "the franchise rights" making them rich.

          It would have made an awesome movie where there's more Ghostbuster teams in other parts of the world but I'm not sure how i feel about it being a reboot :(

    I'll reserve passing judgement until I see more than just the suits. All I have to say is that the pedigree is fair, with Feig directing, so I don't suspect it will be worst than fair.

    I'm so afraid this movie is going to be a comedy movie like Melissa McCarthys other movies. Which is not at all what the original is. The original is a Scifi Fantasy with comedy mixed in. I feel like this movies is going to be the other way a round full on slapstick comedy with scifi fantasy mixed in. I just have a feeling it's not going to be good, I hope I'm wrong.

    The work they're putting into the new suits, packs, and car makes me excited for this movie.

    The fact that Melissa McCarthy is in this movie makes me neutral for this movie

    The gender switch is an interesting new touch on the idea of reboots, although I still consider it a reboot which makes me pessimistic. There is a lot of nostalgy to throw out and replace for them, and nostalgy is a powerful emotion.

    It won't be the same of course, but I'm hoping it will be enjoyable (outside of the "what have they done to my baby" effect). Leslie Jones, however, is one of the least funny people I've seen on television. I don't understand how she works in comedy at all.

    At this point, I'm jaded. I kept up with the whole Ghostbusters 3 development hell debacle - it was on, it was off, they had the principals, they didn't have any principals, they had some of the principals, they had a script, they didn't have a script, it was live action, it was animated, it was 3D CGI, everyone was on board except Bill Murray... By the time Harold Ramis died, I just couldn't care anymore. It was like beating a dead horse. I would rank my concern for the franchise right around Transformers level at this point. Basically, "Enh, it'll happen and a bunch of people will enjoy it, but I can take it or leave it."

    From the same writing-directing team that brought us The Heat. Haven't seen that, is it any good?
